Throughout his life, Wood was aware of the power of the press. He knew his printed work was a vital medium of communication.

At age 16, Wood and a friend had published a weekly newspaper that lasted for three months.

After serving an apprenticeship to a tinsmith and another at the Portland Evening Courier, Wood attended Eastman Business College in Poughkeepsie, New York.

A flyer Wood printed advertises Everett's Grand Indian Exhibition at Franklin Hall in Wiscasset on March 13, in about 1870.
